The real Tea Party, the Tea Party of Samual Adams was a lot different than the metrosexual Tea Party of today. The Samuel Adam's Tea Party, which helped contribute to the start of the Revolution, was made up of true believers, men willing to fight and die for their convictions

men willing to fight and die for their convictions
Oh please. Try to say that you won’t vote for Romney because of convictions and you will see just how negative people are on this very site. We are doomed because even conservatives are not willing to fight for what is right. Totally right that Americans are wimps and that includes conservatives!!!!! Always willing to settle....
Please remember that we are also the parents of the finest military there is. We are not wimps, also that was 2 centuries ago, things change.
I understand some of the frustration: why the heck is the House always giving up because Harry Reid says he won’t allow something or other. Why did they abandon the debt fight when they seemed to have it won?
Its not a matter of “fighting for what is right” it is a matter of pragmatism. The fight for “what is right”, a conservative candidate, happened last fall and “what is right” lost.
If we refuse to vote for Mitt then we assure a worse evil: zero’s re-election and our convictions will be washed away in a flood of scorn and derision. He and his ilk simply will not give one damn about us and our convictions. They don’t care now and it certainly won’t get better if he wins.
Thats the big difference between now and then.
Other differences abound: The new idea, then, that we should govern ourselves versus now: oh yeah...we do.
The press, then, was on the freedom side versus now: no they are not. The fact that , then, it took armed insurrection versus now, we don’t do that nor do we particularly want to do so. [That also entails that the technology of the army and the militia was pretty much on a par except for things like training etc of course.]
Thats just for starters.
Why did you excerpt yourself?
Well put and worth repeating
